Sequel to 'Baby Love'.
Evangeline Gower, single mother and former belly dancer, still has her bad leg, her good heart and the child that isn't hers, but she now likes her ex-boyfriend, knows her psychotic admirer (and his wife) and is beginning to forgive her dead sister. And as for her past - up from it bobs a beautiful Egyptian boy who has lost his mother, trailing in his wake all kinds of chaos including his even more beautiful brother, who leads Evangeline back to Cairo and Upper Egypt where her past, her future, and her old enemy all need sorting out.
'Desiring Cairo' is a novel about love and fantasy, home and abroad, west London and the west bank of the Nile, the nature of strength and the necessity of weakness, the love of children and the love of men, redemption and responsibility, the possibility of happiness and the risks involved in being too affected by the colour of palm-tree fronds at dawn. Like 'Baby Love,' the book which starts Evangeline's story, this is a thriller without violence and a romance without sentiment.
